1985 Jeep Cherokee Chief 2.5L gas from North America
Can't see myself selling it
Have replaced clutch master, slave cylinder, fuel pump, rear pinion seal, clutch pedal, shocks, as well as regular tune up parts, filters, plugs, wires, rotor, etc.
Can see previous repairs to door hinges (not good repairs).
In process of redoing the brakes, front pads worn out, so probably a good indication the rest of the system needs some TLC.
It still needs the vacuum system corrected, exhaust fixed (probably a manifold gasket or donut ring), and a tune up.
I've never owned a Jeep before. I bought it for two reasons; one - I wanted a 4x4, and two - it looked fun.
Although this is no power house, it is the most fun vehicle I've owned.
So far, all repairs I've done to this Jeep stem from poor maintenance, and the vehicle sitting for over 2 years.
So far I have only managed to get it stuck twice; first time I was stuck, sitting in 3 to 4 feet of water, with my axle hung up. With a little tug from a Chevy Astro, the Jeep climbed out under its own power.
Second time, I think with better tires, I would not have got stuck.
Not much I can say bad about this vehicle; parts are hard to find, new or used. I would buy another, and am currently looking for another; my wife wants one LoL.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
